      American-born British musician (b. Oct. 7, 1921, San Francisco, Calif.—d. June 9, 2001, London, Eng.), was a pianist and was the younger sister of acclaimed violinist Yehudi Menuhin. Born into a celebrated musical family, she performed professionally from an early age and occasionally accompanied her brother as he established his career. She made her American debut in 1951 and became a distinguished solo pianist and chamber player. Menuhin was particularly noted for playing Mendelssohn, Mozart, and Chopin. She gave her last concert, in Ipswich, Eng., only a week before her death from a heart attack.
